Manual tailgate window
Okay, I've been away for a while, like 2280 late Bronco posts since last time! I am having tailgate latch problems on my 94. If its not slammed hard enough, window may go up, but later won't go down. Have to pull off panel, disconnect the motor wire, jump with battery charger to get it down. Problem is the left side latch, the two little flappers that latch onto the post when closed. The upper flapper pushes a lever that pushes down on the interlock switch. But closing the latch by hand, then pulling the inside release handle, shows the problem. The top flapper won't spring back far enough due to the drag of the switch. Cleaned and greased everything, no help. It only partially opens, so it makes the tailgate harder to close, and if not closed all the way, no interlock contact, or contact is iffy, which leads to trouble. Tried pulling the latch out, but the window track is in the way. Put it all back in. Was an outside manual crank and lock handle ever on these trucks? If so, I think I'm ready to convert mine and say the heck with the electric. Comments? Help? A big brick?
